Future Proof Their Education

Friday, Apr 10 at 10:00AM MDT

Great Scott! In this day and age, how do you prepare students for uncertain times and shifting careers? Predicting the skills needed for the future, and designing learning for the future are more doable than you may think. Paying attention to the skills that surround the content, instead of the (ever evolving) content itself, will yield the timeless relevance we all seek to deliver in our lessons. 

In this webinar, on Friday, April 10th, we will focus on simple strategies for making every course relevant to students by focusing on the skills they will need in the future. Skeptical? Skeptics encouraged! We’ll show you how this works across subjects.

Information Overload? Strategies for getting organized

Friday, Mar 27 at 10:00AM MDT

The role of the instructor changed fairly rapidly this month – we have quickly become the facilitators of learning, however that learning takes place. To meet learning needs, we communicate by email, text, LMS, and phone. We manage online homework, manage discussion boards, teach through virtual meetings, and build courses in learning management systems. 

All this “going digital” can be a bit overwhelming. How do you manage the mountain of digital communication? How do you keep track of your links, files, and website materials? How do you go about organizing and sifting through the vast array of resources on the Internet and turning them into an easy‐to‐use and coherent set of learning materials for the teaching? 

Join us Friday, March 27th, for strategies for coping with the information overload in the new digital era.

In this webinar on Friday, March 20th, you’ll learn best practices for creating engaging discussion board assignments and inspiring a more dynamic and meaningful online learning experiences. We’ll also go over best practices for creating rubrics and grading your discussion board assignments based on what they are learning.
